Cost $2,500 per person

ABOUT THIS OUTREACH

The India Outreach team will partner with the Changing Destiny Project (changingdestinyproject.org).

Started in 2015, the Changing Destiny Project connects people globally who want to make positive change to end human trafficking. Conservative estimates of 27 million are enslaved in the world today with the number growing every year.

This ministry rescues boys and girls from brothels, some as young as four years old, educating them academically and spiritually to change their life’s trajectory and  impact their future. A Rez team will build on the hope of these children through dramas, sports, baking, singing and dancing with them. Team members will teach the children to smile, laugh and be kids again. Most of all, team members will help teach the children English, without which they will not have a chance at life in a progressive India. There may also be opportunities to minister to women and traffickers in the Red Light District.

ABOUT THIS OUTREACH

Founded in 1994, the Dream Center is a volunteer-driven organization located in Los Angeles, California. Their mission is to find and fill needs of individuals and families living in poverty. This is done through mobile hunger relief, medical programs, residential rehabilitation programs, a shelter for victims of human trafficking, transitional housing for homeless families, foster care intervention programs, job skills training, life skills, counseling, basic education, Bible studies and more. Their vision is to meet people where they are to bring hope and a way off the streets.

The Rez team will take part in Dream Center outreach programs. The communities we serve will be some of the most desperate places in America today. Because of this, all participants ages 15-17 must be accompanied by a parent.

If you have a passion for serving those in need, join us to gain proven, practical skills to bring back to Northern Colorado. Team members can expect to work hard, pray hard and come home a different person inspired to reach their communities.

Housing will be at the Dream Center and some meals are included. Please note, there is no housing for couples and no private individual accommodations.

Trip fee covers round trip airfare, ground transportation, housing at the Dream Center, and some meals.
